“The general feeling is that the Plaza is under-utilised, and if used properly, it would play a crucial role in attracting into town many of the 100s of thousands of visitors to the Rock each year.
“If this is done right, the additional footfall would make inward investment in hospitality and the services industry more attractive.
“I’ve campaigned on many of the great suggestions that have been put forward and will continue to do so.
- A covered area on the Plaza for music.
- To pedestrianize from John St to the top of Main St once a month (maybe on a Saturday) for farmers’ markets for example.
- To consider developing hackney/taxi ranks on Main St during peak demand.
“Another great suggestion for the whole town is the development of a walking/cycle lane that would begin at Brosnan’s Corner, go out the by-pass and back into town. I believe this 4km route would prove incredibly popular among locals and visitors alike.
